#1: Very curly daughter with shrinkage
I have a daughter with VERY curly hair that tends to be a little on the dry side. I have bought lots of different hair products and I like some of them but I cannot find anything to elongate her curls or to keep them from frizzing. I would like to just leave her hair in its natural curly state but it shrinks too much and eventually looks dried out. I usually put her hair in braided ponytails and take the braids out the next day which gives her a wavy look without much shrinkage. But after awhile it looks a little wild. Basically, I am looking for some guidance because although I am curly too our hair is a little different. My hair is never dry and does not frizz if it is curly. Shingling method does not seem to work for her and the banding method is okay, but I end up braiding it afterward anyway to give it some life. Help, please! The attached picture is after I have braided it and taken the braids out.
